The registration fee for the event is £30.

  • Price £30
  • Registration from 8.00am onwards
  • Courts 8am-6pm

The Festival is being organised by Steve Beale & Simon Farr.

We look forward to seeing you on March 2nd.

 

THE VENUE

The Festival will be held at Ravelin Sports Centre, Cambridge Road, Portsmouth PO1 2SE.

All courts will be available for play from 8am-6pm.

There is a water fountain, café, changing rooms and showers within the club. Car parking is free all day.

The Festival will provide refreshments such as squash, bananas and biscuits.

 

PARKING

Parking at the venue is quite expensive, so we've secured the use of the Portsmouth Grammar School car park just over the road from the venue. As a result, parking is free all day for players, if they use the Grammar School car park across the road.

 

FESTIVAL FORMAT

  • The majority of play will follow a festival style of friendly play.  
  • For first timers, you ask at the admin table to be allocated to a court and when the court frees up, you and 3 others play a game to 11, win by 1 before freeing the court up for the next players.  
  • Courts will be arranged for players of all experience and ability levels to get close games with players at a similar level.  This includes beginners, as a festival format is the perfect introduction to playing at an event.
  • You can play with and against people you choose to play with, by letting us know at the admin board. You can ask as a group when you request a court or be paired up with some new friends in the making!
  • There will also be some (optional) opportunities for more competitive players to get involved in some competitive play later in the day.

 

SCHEDULE

Check-in will open at 08.00 and the courts will be in use continuously until just before 18.00.
